Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: Treatment through Corrective Thinking
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a mainstream therapeutic form developed in the 1960s, focuses on the belief that by changing how we think, we can change our behavioral patterns and even our thoughts. Studies have shown that cognitive behavioral therapy can treat anxiety, depression, substance abuse problems, and other mental disorders and phobias. It follows a structured and specifically targeted formula of treatment, meaning it can even require fewer sessions than other types of therapy.
How Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Works
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a way for women to understand how they think and what they do in regards to themselves, others, and the general world. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy takes a certain problem or event and breaks it down into feelings, actions, thoughts, and emotions. This makes it easier to see the different aspects of each situation, and be able to truly understand where each emotion takes root. By getting in touch with these feelings, and adapting to this way of problem-solving, women can be given the chance to overcome their insecurities and issues in a post-treatment world.
Collaboration and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Seaside Center for Women's Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program is a kind of collaborative therapy, meaning that the therapist and the patient work together to discover the patient's goals and develop a method for eliminating thoughts and behaviors that will run counter to these goals, creating a new set of non-destructive behaviors for tackling life's problems. The patient must play an active role in the treatment process, but this active role lets the patient learn how to adopt new perspectives that are in tune with her life goals.
